the united states, i am sure libya receives money. it was even greater because the american ambassador -- i am supportive of the arab spring. the times and elsewhere, i said to myself, they are not great people. but they are people that surely will turn out nice to us. it doesn't make any sense. >> the events of the last week, the embassy attacks, it will result in a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i think there is a little more to follow. the shift in special elections indicated deep distrust of this administration. that was clear. what the administration said, you heard what the state said. the message was sent loud and clear. for a while, i think it was always together. we have heard the state department say that they have taken every reasonable step. we have heard the quote from the ambassador suggesting he was comfortable and these people love me. it's not true. he issued a statement saying he is very concerned about his own safety. again, we have an information gap. that is coming home to roost. this will build. >> today's new york times, the interview with th

and immediate threat of further attacks on united states nationals or the united states that led to the declaration of a national emergency on september 23, 2001, has not been resolved. these actions pose a continuing, unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy and economy of the united states. for these reasons i have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared with respect to persons who commit, threaten to commit or support terrorism and maintain enforce the comprehensive sanctions to respond to this threat. signed, barack obama, the white house. . the speaker pro tempore: referred to the committee on foreign affairs and ordered printed. for what purpose does the gentleman from florida seek recognition? >> madam speaker, by direction of the committee on rules, i call up house resolution 773 for its immediate consideration. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the resolution. the clerk: house calendar number 158, house resolution 773. resolved, that at any time after the adoption of this resolution the spe

are reaction to a little-known amateur movie produced in the united states which ridiculed the prophet mohammed. it gained attention because an obscure florida pastor began promoting it, the same man who triggered deadly riots in afghanistan when he threatened to burn the koran. we want to go straight to cairo where we find nbc chief foreign correspondent, richard engel. richard, fill us in a little more this morning. >> reporter: good morning. a libyan source has told nbc news that the u.s. ambassador who was visiting the consulate was killed along with three others. not sure of the nationality of those three others. the u.s. state department has not confirmed this, but this has been told to us by a senior security source in libya. we've been also told that the libyan prime minister and the libyan president will both be speaking today about this subject, offering their condolences to the united states and to the family of the fallen ambassador. and this is according to the report. we were told that when gunmen and a mob stormed the consulate building, they first attacked it with rpgs, then the

way? what constitutes the wrong way? here in united states and in the middle east there is enormous debate over how to handle iran's pursuit of a nuclear enrichment capability, a capability which would give iran the ability to manufacture nuclear weapons if they chose to do so. and obvious a this is an issue that's been with us for a very long time. i remember i first encountered it in immediate aftermath of the gulf war in 1991 when israel purchased 25 longer-range f-15 e. strike fighters. and those fighters were designated not f-15 e., but f-15-i. and the manufacture said that the i was for israel. if you spoke to israeli air force pilots and commanders, what the uniform would say to you is now now now that i is for iraq. this is an issue, this is a problem, it is a threat that the israelis have been thinking about for a very long time. they has been a great deal of effort trying to figure out how to develop a military option to disarm iran, to destroy its nuclear program if they ever chose to do so. and they've been working very deciduous lead at the. but by the same token, you w
change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he did in 2008. but it still will cut off on my monitor but you can see an incredible increase of nine percentage points for the share of eligible voters who are minorities according to the data between 2008 and 2012. that's a massive demographic tide against the republicans and you can see there's been a decline of five percentage points in the share of voters that are colleges john became group into bills and eight. that is a very quick run through some of the swing states in the 2008 election. maybe it's time for me to step back, catch my breath and just say why is this. why is this going on? why does obama have the lead he does? why is from the having difficulty, and what many people argue should be the core limping along economy and a president that has done so much as the defense and its face it popular at the beginning like the health care reform act and so long, the stimulus looked upon unfavorably by a lot of vo
efforts to grow manufacturing in the united states of america. mr. speaker, i support this bill, i thank my colleagues on the other side of the aisle for their cooperation in bringing this to the floor and getting it for a vote today. i thank not only the chair and the ranking member of the full committee but the chair of the subcommittee who works with us on so many of these important issues. with that said i'll reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentlewoman from california. mrs. bono mack: mr. speaker, i'd like to yield four minutes to the co-author of the legislation, very hardworking member of the subcommittee on commerce, manufacturing and trade, the gentleman from illinois, mr. kinzinger, for four minutes. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from illinois is recognized for four minutes. mr. kinzinger: i had -- i'd like to thank mrs. bono mack for getting this bill to the floor. it's an honor to stand here with my colleague from illinois, mr. lipinski, of this bipartisan legislation, especially at a time when americans think that
that egypt receives from the united states and i'm sure libya receives money -- i don't know how much, but i'm sure it does. and the amount was greater because the imbass door from libya had help arab spring. i've never been supportive of the arab spring. i know the columnists and the "times" and elsewhere extol it. we're friends with people who i'm sure will turn time-out be hostile to us. it doesn't make any sense. why should anybody trust us in the future? i'm not talking about mubarak how we threw him under the bus. those were the background facts that caused me to react strongly. >> congressman, you are very much the beneficiary of a shift in jewish vote in your district of queens and brooklyn. do you think the events, the attacks will result in yet a further ongoing shift of jewish americans changing -- >> i do. and i think there's a little more to follow. the shift in the special election indicated the distrust of this administration. and it was clear we heard what he said. we heard what the administration say and people didn't believe it. and the message was sent loud and clear. and
, but that is critical cause more trouble than any of the problem we've got fiscally in the united states. getting medicare costs under control is the number-one thing. >> you say we also surcharged smokers and the obese for their medicare coverage. where did that idea come from? >> i am the person that put it in the memo but i didn't have to fight very hard for it. also, i ran into this, something i ran in "the washington post" install of calling people morbidly obese i called them mega fatties and i was refuted by "the washington post" for being insensitive, which i guess i probably am. this is another thing where everybody knows this to be true and someone has to pay for it. there should be penalties. i'm not really a democrat but i'm certainly democrat compared to him. you have to be responsible to some extent for your personal behavior. someone is going to pay for it. >> quite right. we should point out also we are not only ones making arguments like this. there are other bipartisan commissions and so forth. the task force that was headed by a was rivlin and pete domenici, a democrat and repu
difficult issues that face the united states. so we are happy to have you. it's important to remember that yes, let's have quick applause for bob turner. [applause] do you know why? he may one day become a kingmaker himself. what we have to point out is acknowledging bob turner's election is that it requires for [inaudible conversations] across party lines. if you didn't know, bob turner is a republican in what would be otherwise considered a democratic district of brooklyn. mayor koch is not the first time -- and queens, you're right. so sorry. thank you for correcting me. but this is not the first time that mayor koch has crossed party lines. of course, remember, he voted for george bush in the second election, 2004. he actually famously said i don't agree with a single thing that george bush -- >> single domestic issue. >> with the exception of the fact that i think he is handling terrorism and a superior way. and that he was the most important issue. in the case of the movements, support for bob turner, you and i did an event shortly thereafter in which you explained your support
of violence will shake the resolve of the united states of america. >> good morning. it is thursday, september 13th. welcome to "morning joe." with us on set, national affairs editor for "new york" magazine, john heilman, richard haass. and in washington, nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent and host of "andrea mitchell reports," andrea mitchell. >> we have so much to talk about this morning. of course breaking news overnight. >> yeah. >> we, of course, have been focused on libya. yesterday we were focused on the political scrap that was taking place while we had chaotic situations across the globe. >> i'd say it was more than a scrap. >> i think it was a terrible moment, maybe a defining moment in the campaign, of course what's going on in egypt right now. is equally troubling. and i suspect that when the streets clear, perhaps the most troubling aftereffect of this will be what has not been said by the muslim brotherhood or the leaders of egypt. this morning we'll have to get to that later because this morning more breaking news. now out of yemen. >> yep. witnesses say hundreds of demonst
, president of the united states of america. >> mr. president, mr. secretary general, fellow delegates, ladies and gentleman, i would like to begin today by telling you about an american named chris stevens. chris was born in a town called grass valley, california, the son of a lawyer and a musician. as a young man, chris joined the peace corps, and taught english in morocco. and he came to love and respect the people of north africa and the middle east. he would carry that commitment throughout his life. as a diplomat, he worked from egypt to syria, from saudi arabia to libya. he was known for walking the streets of the cities where he worked -- tasting the local food, meeting as many people as he could, speaking arabic, listening with a broad smile. chris went to benghazi in the early days of the libyan revolution, arriving on a cargo ship. as america's representative, he helped the libyan people as they coped with violent conflict, cared for the wounded, and crafted a vision for the future in which the rights of all libyans would be respected. and after the revolution, he supported the birt
states has now asked a private entity in the united states to review a film that was put on youtube. so government is supposed to protect free. see instead, it's asking them to look at a video. what is next? if we give them the excuse that the video, we understand why you rioted and killed our ambassador and three others, because of a video, then what happens when something really serious happens? >> kimberly: it sounds like a justification, which is the problem to be honest with you. >> bob: there is no connection between the video and the terrorists. >> dana: that is what they're saying. >> bob: it's doing a somber ceremony. i don't know where you get the twitter -- did he go beand they casket? >> dana: no, the campaign did. >> greg: bob is saying these are separate incidents and the terrorist attack is not about the movie. they conflateed it. not us. they conflated it. i want to know where are all the freedom of speech celebrity filmmakers who were out there and defended the crucifixion in the glass of urine? do we remember that? somehow they're silent about this. >> kimberly: now we
's in response not to the united states policy, not to, obviously, the administration and not to the american people, it's in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be reprehensible and disgusting. >> sure, that's what it was about, all about and watching a video. and so how has this administration handled the crisis? my first guest is on the intelligence committee, would you please welcome minnesota congresswoman michele bachmann. [applause]. good to see you. >> thank you so much for coming. >> thank you. >> no nice to be with you. >> (applause): congresswoman, the white house is blaming all of this on this movie trailer for a movie that nobody really has even seen trying to say that all of this violence was stirred up because people saw a film. your thoughts, is that what we're really dealing with here is a film? >> no, it isn't. that's the excuse, but that isn't what it is because we know what's happening for about since 2005. the 57 muslim countries across the world have had a plan for ten years and they want it force all the rest of the world to be in compliance with their re
. >> warner: the president said the united states would work with the libyan government to track down the perpetrators. >> today, we mourn four more americans who represent the very best of the united states of america. we will not waver in our commitment to see that justice is done for this terrible act. and make no mistake, justice will be done. >> warner: for now, the pentagon ordered special units of marines to libya called "fast" teams, like this detachment shown training, to reinforce security at diplomatic sites in libya. and from tripoli, the president of libya's national assembly echoed the words of his american counterparts. >> ( translated ): we apologize to the united states of america and to the american people and to the whole world for what happened, and at the same time we expect the rest of the world to help us face these cowardly criminal acts. we refuse to use our country's land as a scene of cowardly reprisals. >> warner: those reprisals came apparently in response to internet clips of a film titled "the innocence of muslims" that crudely defamed the prophet muhamm
thing either for the region or the flowering of democracy in that region or really for the united states. so i think it's arguable that the president doesn't need to as jonathan put it baby sit these leaders all the time. these sort of meetings that they're having now in a lot of ways are about the optics and i don't think that it was necessary for the president to pander to the jewish american vote meeting with netanyahu, because he's in a good place with that community. i don't think there were many imperatives for the president to sort of put on a show of taking care of this leader or that leader. he's also made it a point of his foreign policy to give america enough distance from some of the gulf states if a revolution takes place there we have the freedom to take the side of the opposition. >> also right, nobody is voting on this issue. this is inside baseball. do you think someone is at home saying he didn't meet with these leaders so i'm not going to vote for him. >> i'm thinking this more in terms of serving america's interests and think there's something to be said not rock the
, the next step is to ask the united states military, will they and can they provide protection and to get -- request permission from the host government to allow them to come in, the u.s. forces, solely to protect the perimeter of the scene and the investigators while they are there. and best we can tell, we don't know if that's ever happened. >> so does it make sense to you, the claim that security is the concern for why fbi agents aren't on the ground? >> it doesn't make sense to me because i understand that there are procedures in place to try and mitigate against those risks and concerns and ways to deal with it. >> procedures that 16 days on, you would think could be in place. >> yes. exactly. >> bob, you have been talking to sources at the pentagon. you say the u.s. is really at a standoff here. how so? >> it's in a standoff, anderson, because the fbi and the military have decided they have to go in with extra protection. the military wanted to send in a special package which would have included counter battery because remember, the annex was attacked by mortars. this was a military
. that is why i'm going to become the next president of the united states. >> romney harrially criticized the president for downplaying a bump in the road the terrorist attack in libya that killed the u.s. ambassador and three other americans two weeks ago. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives and developments we don't want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east. >> romney charged obama administration nighyevly jumping the gun that the insistence that the attack were unplanned. team romney planned for weeks to pick up tempo of the obama attack. the emphasis on alternate policies. >> whether on the auto industry or taxes, whether it's on social issues. what he is saying about my position is not true. >> obama camp launched a new blast today using the surreptitiously obtained of romney dissing those who don't pay income taxes. >> romney attacked 57% of americans who don't pay income tax, including veteran, elderly and disabled. >> asked about the negative misleading ads on "60 minutes" the president did not deny it. >> do we see
